Hi, list,

I'm new to cobbler/koan, so I'm hoping this is a newbie error.  I've  
followed the guides on the wiki, added a system, and now I'm trying  
to create a Xen guest with koan.  When I run:

   koan --virt --server=bread --system=souffle

I get a python stacktrace:


and the error:

   Could not communicate with bread:25151

cobblerd is running and I can telnet to its port, by host name.  This  
is happening on loopback, so iptables shouldn't be in the way (and I  
tried stopping it as a test).

`cobbler list` looks like:

distribution   : FC-6-xen-i386
   profile      :   FC-6-xen-i386
     system     :     souffle
distribution   : FC-6-i386
   profile      :   FC-6-i386
repo           : fc6i386updates
repo           : fc6i386extras

The machine is:

   Linux bread 2.6.18-1.2869.fc6xen #1 SMP Wed Dec 20 15:28:06 EST  
2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

(2.6.20 can be brought up with a trip on-site if it'd help) and the  
software versions are:


Odds are I'm missing a step/concept.  Ideas/suggestions/pointers-to- 
TFM welcome.
